Mod Mix Monday #40

Still Thinking Pink
This room is painted Benjamin Moore Pink Begonia.
I love so much about this room.
chandelier - check
pink walls - check
That lamp! - check
yellow chevron chair - and I don't even like chevron...let's just call it what it is people...zig zag
paintings - check
diamond pane windows - check
pink peonies - check
and what about that pink velvet covered chair? the velvet completely covers the arms! - check
that aqua and white settee - check
I guess it would be easier to say what I don't like.
The moroccan table is the only thing I'm not crazy about.

Now the favorites from last week's 
Mod Mix Monday
Korrie of Red Hen Home turned a card catalog into this fabulous and functional coffee table.
Jeri at Decorating Hemlock redid her mannequin with old book pages.
Betsy of Betsy Speert's Blog shared several of her collections.
I fell in love with these vintage birds.
Laura of Whimsical Perspective transformed a room in her house by painting and changing her built ins. 
Don't they look fresh now?
And finally, Art is Beauty created a one of a kind piece by painting and adding transfers to this 
little curvy table. 

I so enjoy all your link ups each week...

Link up this week's MMM's below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

That pink room really pops doesn't it? I am going to pin it to my Pinterest board. You know who would like that room? Kirstie Alley. Did you see her Maine coast cottage all done up in pinks? Thanks for hosting and I am happy to be joining in on the fun.

love the room you posted about! I like how you pick apart the elements of a room, its like watching your brain analyze design. many of those things I would have missed~like the pink velvet arms on the chair.

Hi Nita,

Have a beautiful day, my friend.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Love that pink room too! The yellow chair adds a touch of the unexpected. Chevron sounds more glamorous than zig zag! And I kind of like it myself! lol

I've been enjoying your pink posts. I've always liked pink rooms - I think it goes back to my elegant great aunt and her fabulous big old Italianate house - where my favorite "room" was a hall and bath done in subtle barely-there pink, decorated with beautiful sea shells from her travels. It's very "IN" now to pair shells with aqua for that beachy look, but I still like them with soft pink.

On another pink note, my favorite thrift store displays its dishes and nick-nacks by colour. One floor-to-eye-level set of shelves each for red, blue, white, glass, green, pink... Today the pink shelf positively glowed with warm, cosy pink - and it was a cold, grey, blustery wet day! Best of all, a set of Maimie Eisenhower pink '50's dishes came home to live with me!

I'll think of Aunty Grace every time I use them.
